Happy National Hug An Anchor Day!

Happy National Hug An Anchor Day, everybody!

In a tradition reportedly started by “Fox & Friends” in 2009 (although they called it “Hug A Newsman Day” back then–video above), today, April 4th, is the time to show some affection to your favorite news anchor.

Anchors across the country have been taking part in the holiday on-air.

Here’s a collection of videos…
